Entertainment: Dune Made A Ton Of Money On Opening Night, So Bring On The Sequel

Are you curious about the filming of 1984 after "Dune"? So you can see "Dune - The Desert Planet"

 Are you curious about the filming of 1984 after The Roman "Dune - The Desert Planet" of Frank Herbert is quite a tower: 800 pages includes the new translation, which is currently found in book stores and mailing dealers. That director Denis Villeneuve does not adapt the book to a blow, but in his new " Dune " films only the first half, is therefore an understandable decision. But at " Dune - the desert planet " from 1984 it was different. © Warner Bros.

Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic Dune is finally here and is already leaving its mark on the box office. There was worry that the film being released to watch on HBO Max at the same time it premieres in theaters would affect its box office performance and its prospects for a sequel, but things are looking very positive on both fronts. The pre-sales for Dune outperformed Marvel and James Bond ahead of its opening weekend and has reportedly done very well on its opening night. Dune made a ton of money on Thursday night, so bring on the sequel.

Deadline reports that Dune made a little over $5 million from its Thursday showtimes with projections that indicate a huge opening weekend. The opening night showtimes outperformed Halloween Kills opening night numbers, and that’s an encouraging sign as Halloween Kills went on to make over $50 million. The new Halloween movies performance is also a good sign as it also premiered on a streaming service for free to subscribers in the same way Dune was released on HBO Max.

  Every single thing you need to know before you watch Dune Every single thing you need to know before you watch Dune -Based on the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert, which spawned five sequels, Dune takes place in the year 10191 in a distant galaxy populated by opposing houses who are fully dependent on the production of a precious mineral known as spice melange that is found only on a desert planet called Arrakis. The spice is just one of literally hundreds of different strands to the narrative which predominantly follows the heroic arc of young Paul Atreides.

All the signs are pointing to a great domestic weekend for Dune. Combined with the international numbers that will add to its total number, the film will be seen as a definite success and hopefully enough for the continuation of Denis Villeneuve’s vision. The sequel is all but confirmed with a Warner Bros. executive releasing a puzzling but optimistic take on the prospect of a sequel. There is definitely still a wait-and-see approach the studio is using, but fans shouldn’t be worried.

Director Denis Villeneuve has been adamant about the film needing a sequel and already has a third movie mapped out. Dune star Javier Bardem is invested in getting a sequel made, and everyone involved is committed to continuing the story and finishing what they started. After seeing the film, fans will definitely want more from its stars and the beautifully crafted desert world of Arrakis.

The movie is being marketed as the next Stars Wars or Lord of The Rings, drilling into its audience’s head that this is a saga and the movie is only the first part. There is plenty left on the table, narratively, which indicates an even more epic and action-packed continuation. The prospect of seeing more of stars like Zendaya, Javier Bardem, and Timothy Chalamet is enticing.

Denis Villeneuve’s film is big, in scope and length, and there was probably a lot left on the cutting floor, and he has spoken about the one scene he had to cut that is still “painful.” Dune is available on HBO Max until November 21st and is in theaters everywhere, and well worth seeing, and worthy of its epic status.
